A federal judge in Ohio ordered state officials Monday to recognize the marriage of two men that was performed in Maryland on the death certificate of an Ohio resident in hospice care who the judge says “is certain to die soon.”

And so it begins...(sigh)...
My lord, such gayness portrayed in one photo! Disgusting knowing where those mouths have been...
You can almost see their glee in anicipation of adopting a young male child in that photo.
Wonder what he’s dying of...hmmm...
Lou Gehrig’s disease, supposedly.
It makes me sick to think just one judge can ignore the votes of millions and nullify the laws of states.
It has never been about "love", rather is ALL about money.
He wants the insurance.
No doubt it is a combination of diseases from his gay lifestyle. I read that nearly 40% of gay men report they have had over 500 sexual partners. And many, many gay men have multiple bouts with all sorts of STDs.
Yes, it does. When the first state recognized homosexual marriage, I knew right away that they would use the courts to try to force in on the rest of us.

Based upon that, a person with a concealed carry permit should be able to carry concealed in states where it is otherwise not permitted.
The insurance should not be an issue, as the partner can be named as beneficiary on any life insurance. Where this would come into play, would be to allow the “spouse” to automatically inherit all or some of the assets. Without the “spouse”, those assets would likely be split (depending on Ohio law) between parents, children, or siblings of the decedent, assuming no valid will is in place. So this would allow the spouse to trump other blood relatives for part or all of the assets at death.

Simple solution, don’t issue a death certificate. But do nail him for not filing an income tax return. A win, win for both governments.
iT’S ALL ABOUT THE MONEY...social security, etc.
Why don’t these fags just live where they get fake “married?” Oh, yeah. Then they couldn’t push their perversion on everyone else.
SCOTUS doesn’t have the last word on this.
Total set up. They likely judge shopped in OH as well. Thanks Kennedy. Who appointed this mighty Constitutionalist as a SCJ?
Correct. When the person dies, his siblings/blood relatives could pursue having the “married” on death certificate overturned, if Ohio does not recognize same-sex marriages. Then the siblings could inherit by Ohio’s default rules for intestate decedents.
Tax would only come into play if we are talking about millions in the estate.
Read the comments at the link. But take your BP meds first!
...and in some states -like Massachusetts- you don't even get a chance to HAVE a vote to be ignored....
If, as was supposedly ruled recently by SCOTUS, it is a state issue, then the proper federal order would have been that the death certificate be issued in Maryland, and especially if the couple with intention went to Maryland for the marriage license.
Personally, I’d tell the fed judge to go pound sand if I were Governor Kasich, and I’d promptly pardon anyone at any time who is charged by that same federal judge, including myself.
I would FORCE them to send in the military to override my authority.
This is my state. We voted down gay marriage. Let them castrate themselves. Maranatha, Lord Jesus!
Ohio needs to say, “You have no Constitutional authority to make that demand, so we refuse to accept and honor it.”
Haven’t the libs clearly established that we can ignore ‘unlawful orders’
I love my gun. Therefore California should be forced to recognize my Utah CCW permit. My gun and I are attached at the hip. How dare California refuse to recognize my firearm marriage that was consummated in Utah.
It's unfair. It's all about love.
Guns are like good dogs. Just a little loving care, and they’ll stand between you and the wolf.
Screw em! There’s no Full Faith and Credit for gun laws—to hell with the homo laws.
A will would do the same, so I don’t see that as an issue. Nobody is entitled to the money of another at death.
It would allow a gay spouse to get the benefit of any marriage adjustments in the estate taxes — spouses can inherit with no tax in most cases. But I can’t say I’m all that upset about that, because all of us should be able to inherit without tax (and most of us will, at least federally, with the 5 million deduction).
That is why they chose this case — it is the one most likely to invoke some level of sympathy even among opponents of SSM. Once this case grants the right, then they get it all, like forcing christian business to provide spouse benefits for same sex couples.
Ohio should ignore the order. Make the Feds deploy troops. Enough deployments at so many dollars a day would eventually break the Federal government and its communist courts.
the slippery slope begins. The next thing that we will have to accept is a man with multiple wives moves this country. Where does it end?
Tell the federal judge no.
Yeah, they’d better watch what they’re doing or they’ll open Pandora’s box.
The death certificate would have to be issued in the state where he died. Since Ohio doesn’t recognize gay marriage, I have no clue why this judge ruled the way he did, except he had an agenda. It was likely judge shopped to get the result they wanted.
The ruling should be challenged.
The proper remedy IMHO would be to provide a means by which states can recognize civil unions between arbitrary adult couples who could not legitimately be married. Membership in a civil union would be orthogonal to the propriety of sexual relations either between the union's members, or between a member of the union and someone else. Consequently, such a union would not have to be restricted to persons who are not blood relatives; two widowed siblings, for example, might wish to form a union to care for the children they bred with their late spouses. The siblings would not be considered spouses, but each would be co-guardian of the other's children, and each would have survivorship rights in the other's estate.
Oddly, however, civil union laws often expressly forbid siblings from forming unions, even though since civil unions are supposedly "not about sex" incest should be a non-factor.
It doesn’t need to say that for him to get insurance.. a policy must only name a beneficary.
Bring on the “Full Faith and Credit” lawsuits!
Maryland “Freak State” PING!
let them pay the taxes, the insurance, etc that marrieds do...let them pay divorce lawyers....let them go to hell if they want to....
its clearly out of our hands...
live your life well, folks...live as much as you can under God's rule....associate and take solace from fellow God fearing people.....there really is not much we can do about our Soddam and Gomorrah society...
its easy to make millions in this country if you're willing to live sinfully and ruthlessly...
The blame for Anthony Kennedy lies with Reagan. Reagan had 3 Sup Court picks, and two of them were terrible. The O’Connor pick was worse than Kennedy since the GOP controlled the Senate when he chose her, but he should never have settled on Kennedy.
According to the article, the guy has not died yet, but may die very soon. So, the death certificate would be issued in the locality where he actually dies.
The state of Ohio should issue automatic annulments to same sex couples married out of state.
